Breaking News: Roman Reigns Tests Positive For COVID-19, Off WWE Day 1


We just received some breaking news coming from WWE and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Reigns has posted to his Twitter account confirming that he has been removed from tonight’s WWE Day 1 card after testing positive for COVID-19. Therefore, Brock Lesnar will now be added to the WWE Championship Title match. That means we’ll see Big E. defend his title against Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley in a Fatal 5-Way match. This is a massive blow for WWE as there were plans for a big angle between Reigns, Lesnar, and Heyman at tonight’s pay-per-view event. The angle would have put the plans in motion for WrestleMania 38.
